There are a number of ways to help with the activities and goals of MEAS:
We are actively seeking volunteers to help gather the relevant data for the 2018 version of our annual ‘Gender in Poetry Publishing in Ireland’ report. If you have some time to spare to collect the data for a press, a magazine, or even a single issue of a publication, please get in touch and we will coordinate all efforts.
Similarly, if you are the editor of a poetry press or literary magazine in Ireland and you would like to provide statistics for your publications, or if you would like to suggest corrections to our reports, please let us know.
We also welcome submissions from other parties for the preparation of reports on associated subjects which share a similar goal of foregrounding the importance of equality, inclusivity, and diversity in the literary arts in Ireland. For more information on finding support for your project with MEAS, please contact us.
Finally, we would be very happy to add suitable parties to the overseeing board to assist with the running of this organisation as it grows. If this is of interest to you, please contact us for more information.
